It makes bugzilla too spammy, and does not make any sense to me: If it is FIXED, it will be marked (even visually) as such on the meta blocker list, so why doubling the number of bugemails we get by removing it from the meta bug blocking list?

When bugs are fixed (so there is a stripe on the number), they need to be cherry-picked to the branch. Ademar removes them to the meta-bug so that he can know what was cherry-picked or not.
